beans were sweet. I liked

Sydney is the destination of a lot of students
that want to improve their English! In this city
we can find many opportunities to have fun,
study, work, etc...however most of us have a
preoccupation in common, MONEY! so now I
will show you some options to survive in this
fantastic city without spending a lot of money!
-Century Bar: in this place we can have a drink for just 3 dollars, that's very cheap if we compare with other bars in Sydney! address: 640 George Street, Sydney
-International Court: this is the most cheap food court in Navitas' area, it's possible have a meal for 5 dollars, most of the restaurants are asian, so if you like this kind of food that's a good option.Address: in George Street opposite of Wynyard station -Three Monkeys, Cheers and Star Bar: if you want to have fun and don't have money to spend in entrance fees these are the right place, you can enter for FREE!!address:555 George St Sydney,
561 George Street Sydney , 600 George Street Sydney

Here is the Brigadeiro recipe:- 1 can of condensed milk (approx.400g)- 1 teaspoon of butter- 4 tablespoons of chocolate powder (if you can find itin your country)or 6 tablespoons of milk chocolate drink powder (Nescau, Nesquick, Milo, etc.)Mix the ingredients in a saucepan.Heat on the stoveover lowheat. Keep stirring it until the Brigadeiro starts to get thick. Once it has the proper consistencytake it off the heatand keep stirring for about a minute so that the Brigadeiro won't stick tothe bottom of the saucepan. Put it on a greasedbowl or a trayand wait for it to cool. Enjoy and be happy forever!Hint: Once the Brigadeiro is still hot on the saucepan it will look softer, but as it cools down it will get more solid.Cheers!

What do you expect for the future?Keep working on what Im doing now.
Congratulations from everyone at Navitas, Julio!
How long will you study at Navitas?Ive already paid until September, which means a year.
Why did you choose Sydney to study? I had different reasons, such as, my teachers advice, Ive got some relatives living in Australia. But the main reason is I like the weather. For us its really important; we love the sun and beaches.
What do you do in your free time?Actually I dont have much free tim, because Ive been working very hard. When I have free time I usually prefer to relax at home. Only on Fridays sometimes I go out. I really like spending time with my husband enjoying his company.
How is your life in Australia?Every week is busy. I wake up usually at 6.00am, I have my breakfast and then I go to work from 8.00 until 15.00, then the school from 16.40 until 21.00.
Talk a bit about your background.I have an Accounting degree from Brazil. I got married last January in here with my husband, and he is also from Brazil. Weve been together for 4 years or so. In few words, I can say that my life changed totally here in Sydney, for example, married status, wishes, priorities and expectation of life.
What do you expect for the future?I would like to extend my visa to study something related to my career (accounting), but unfortunately I cant afford it. Then, Ive been thinking about living abroad, to know different cultures and maybe go back to Brazil. I just said maybe because even missing Brazil and my family, now my family is new and is my husband.
